Denair, California
Reviewed 2 September 2014

A luxury hotel with a small hotel feel and charm. Very detailed oriented, service and staff impeccable. It takes you back in time to the 17th century. The rooms capture the charm but are modern at the same time. It's a one of a kind gem.

Dear Madam, Dear Sir, Thank You very much for the great review! It was a pleasure to read that you enjoyed the intimate ambience of our rooms; we have taken time and care into creating spaces which reflect our contemporary design (we like to mix old and new) but also remain warm and welcoming. I am thrilled to learn that...

My family had a great stay at Hotel Les Armures. Our rooms weren't ready when we arrived because it was pretty early in the morning, but the staff locked up our luggage while we went out for the day. The rooms were very cozy--typical of Europe. The beds were comfortable and the bathroom had everything you would need, although the...

This is a very comfortable and beautifully refurbished small hotel in the old city. The room was spacious with comfortable chairs and good quality bedding and amenities. The only small quirk was the very complicated lighting system in the room.

Absolute gem of a hotel. It didn't look that impressive from outside but the friendly staff soon put my mind at ease. I'd seen the rooms via tripadvisor, they looked great but in reality they were even better! I can honestly say that the quality of the rooms are as good as I've ever seen (previous hotels include 4 seasons...

Our first time in Geneva, we loved staying in the older part of town. Hotel Les Amures was the perfect place to start a 2 week vacation. The room was large and comfortable and the staff was very helpful. We would definitely stay here again.

We have spent plenty of money at upscale hotels around the world in our travels but we did not feel that the rates here were justified. The location in Old Town was great. The hotel had an interesting, well documented history. The room was lovely - but quite small. We were charged an additional 40CHF per nite for parking our...

The location of this hotel is wonderful if you want easy access to the old town and city centre. It doesn't have lake views but that wasn't what we were after. The service was consistently lovely. No problem at all when we arrived at 1am after a delayed flight from Heathrow. The room was always wonderfully cleaned while we were...

We stayed for one night very beginning of May. We were upgraded to a junior suite which was really nice with much place. Beds are very comfortable, wifi is excellent.

Very disappointed with this hotel. It has the best location in Geneva. But this is all. Service is poor, impersonal. Rooms are tiny. There is no acoustic insulation, as it is an old building. So, everyday (and night) you are awaken either by the service personel or by other guests. Talking about old. There is one lift. That was broken...

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Unique hotel located in the heart of the Old town of Geneva, “Les Armures” offers a breathtaking view of historic part of the city, while being only a stone's throw away from the business and shopping centre of Geneva. This magnificent 17th century residence has been recently renovated to create a unique environment, combining luxury and refinement, well-being and savoir-vivre with uniquely decorated rooms and suites, all of them with their own charm and elegance. As far as dining is concerned, Epicureans will enjoy “Les Armures” restaurant, known as one of the oldest in the city. The “brasserie style” restaurant, features all-day dining and serves Swiss specialities, such as cheese fondue or raclette.
